Isn't she pretty? I was so happy to see this pretty girl and her man had built a new nest just inside our backyard fence that runs along the driveway. They had a failed attempt at starting a family a few weeks ago on our porch. She had been sitting patiently on her eggs inside a hanging basket on our back porch, as she has done for several years in a row now. Sadly, Ken found the nest abandoned and the eggs hatched, but the babies had all died after a few days. We still don't know why or how they died. I was really thankful that Ken took care of disposing of them and didn't tell me about it for a couple of days. I don't want that image in my head. Things like that really affect me and bother me longer and more intensely than they should.
Anywho...a new bunch of little bald doves will be hatched soon and hopefully they will make it.
I guess you've noticed that I gave up on calling my husband by a fake name lately. Now that he's retired, there's really no need for such anonymity on his behalf anymore. His name is Ken. That probably sounds weird now since you've only heard him called by other names, but there ya go.
We sat out on the back porch a little after 10 pm last night and watched the annual city fireworks show. The park isn't far from our house, so we get a good few of the fireworks without having to leave the comfort of our home. Here's a little taste. Enjoy...
P.S. I'm enjoying the Holly Madison book, Down the Rabbit Hole, very much! But I'm not so naive that I believe for one minute she's as innocent or as much of a victim as she's portraying herself. I'm sure some of that aspect is true and she probably wasn't treated as nicely by Hef as people may have thought, but still. I really like the trash-talking she did about Kendra! It's interesting to see things from a different perspective than we saw on TV. It's an entertaining read.
